Untangle was founded with the vision of untangling the complexities of technology, initially targeting network security and control for SMBs. The company follows Open Source development practices to create better code and make it widely available.
The Untangle Gateway, the world’s first commercial-grade open source solution for blocking spam, spyware, viruses, adware and unwanted content on the network, provides a free and better alternative to costly, inflexible proprietary appliances. Untangle’s applications are currently being used in tens of thousands of businesses in a variety of industries, including financial services, real estate, education, bio-science, and professional services. Untangle is based in San Mateo, California, and is backed by venture capital firms CMEA Capital and Rustic Canyon Partners.
